    So I was leaning over the balcony of my foyer which is a good 12 feet, and dropped my droid onto my slate floor. I started freaking out and went down to check the damage, expecting the screen to be broke at the least, I have no screen cover btw and droped it directly on the screen and not even a scratch! I was awestruck. Feel free to share your phone abuse stories here if u want...

    I had the MOTO DROID for months and dropped it SEVERAL times and I also think it is the strongest phone(obviously besides the made for destruction phones)out there. Never got a so much as a scratch on the thing.

    I have dropped my phone on tile once, and cement carport floors 3 times. The last time was the worst because it landed face down on some gravel and a rock that were on the cement. This caused a crack from the A in motorola to the top right corner as well as a couple small chips on the lower half of the screen. It still works 100%, even where the chips are, the slider is fine, the glass didn't break out or in, just cracked. I'm pretty happy with how it has withstood my abuse.

    I'll keep it like this for a while then call insurance on it lol

    I've dropped mine twice on pavement and the last time the Seidio back cover and the battery cover popped off. I expected the worst but not even a scratch. I'm thankful that I have a Seidio innocase.

    They used something called Gorilla glass. Supposedly it's stronger and coated.

    You can tell it has some kind of coating on it, it seems impossible to scratch these screens.

    I haven't dropped my droid yet, but I do have a great story. Back when I had my lg vx7000 I lived in a 12 story dormitory. I was in the stairwell on the 4th floor talking on the phone when I sneezed and flung my phone down the center part in between the flights of stairs. It hit several railings and fell all the way to the basement. I went down to pick it up, expecting it to be in pieces, and the phone was only scratched and, get this, the call was still connected! I also washed that phone with my laundry 4 times. It still works to this day, and serves as a backup in case anything happens to my current phone.

    well you can definitely scratch them. i've read many reports of it happening. but obviously it's pretty tough. i wasn't aware they used a coating of any kind. just that that the strength of the glass was much better than standard glass and would resist breaking to pieces much better and any damage would be minimized compared with regular glass. but perhaps they did coat it with something. the dow corning gorilla glass webpage doesn't say for sure.
